Righteous recording and an electrifying mix really convey the joy and passion of the music and listeners are all in before they even realize. DaSilva’s tone is absolutely marvelous throughout, and the band builds sonic landscapes for everyone to stretch out on. The variety here is rewarding and impressive, guarantying that boredom is nowhere on the horizon. There’s even a wee bit of rockabilly sprinkled here and there, and it’s the perfect touch.
Although Everywhere From Here is a well-rounded album, we still had favorites. We really appreciated the superb ’70s vibe of “Everyday Man,” and the boiling, deep, and tawdry blues of “Down in the Delta.” For us, “Cadillac Mama” is a strong, well played roadhouse cut, worthy of a Texas trail indeed. “This Day I Bleed” is rock the way it used to be, with attitude! “Spell On Me” is a tight yet nimble little honky-tonk flavored shuffle, and “Time Heals All Wounds” is an intense, revealing B.B. King influenced pilgrimage.
Who is Joel DaSilva?
The son of traveling musicians from Brazil, DaSilva lost his father at age 3, which had a profound impact on the young artist’s life. At the age of 18, DaSilva joined his first blues outfit as the lead guitarist for “Junior Drinkwater and the Thirstquenchers”. DaSilva went on to put out 5 independent records thus far in a career spanning over 10 years. DaSilva has worked alongside such widely recognized and diverse artists as B.B.King, Ray Charles, the White Stripes, A.C. Reed, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Reverend Horton Heat, Foghat, Los Lobos, Leon Russell, the Black Crowes, Nighthawks, Edgar and Johnny Winter, and Jimmie Vaughan. In Fort Lauderdale, DaSilva will always be remembered as one of the founding members of the Hep Cat Boo Daddies and later, The Midnight Howl.
